Into the Weeds Teacher Resources

Research, writing, and art come together in this fun post-activity that can be adapted for all grade levels. Encourage your students to learn more about an invasive species of their choosing and share their findings through a creative "wanted" poster.

If you are looking for a fun way to incorporate scientific models and math into your lesson plans, this engaging post-activity is just what you need. Use diagrams and life-size models to find out what makes native plant roots so special!

Let's Go Birding! - Teacher Resources

Your students will love reading this 6-page article with beautiful photos and diagrams of bird feathers. "Val Cunningham is a nature writer and editor in St. Paul who spends as much time as she can outdoors watching birds and other wildlife."

Use this Teacher's Guide, made available through the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, to lead your students through critical thinking study questions and an assessment.

Let's Go Mucking! - Teacher Resources

A publication of the University of Wisconsin-Extension in cooperation with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

Teachers and students can use this guide to learn more about the adaptations and life cycles of the water critters in our videos or in the water bodies near your school! Use the index at the end to search for the critters you found.

Now that your students have learned how to collect and identify aquatic macroinvertebrates, the next step is to learn what it all means!

You do not need to collect your own macroinvertebrates, but if you have a nearby body of water, you may want to check out one of our mucking kits before doing this activity.
